Tarnish – the silver
All three must be considered when polishing, using, or storing silver.
Tarnish, the darkening of metal, is the result of exposure to a source of sulfur in the air or hydrogen sulfide gas, known to chemists as Silver Sulfide. The most common source of hydrogen sulfide today is the result of combustion, especially from automobile emissions.
Step One - Removing tarnish
Step Two - Polishing or making
the surface shine.
Step Three - Preventing tarnish
The most important thing to remember is that silver is made to be used and enjoyed. When frequently used and properly polished and stored, it will develop a soft patina that makes the care and use easier.
The following substances have chemicals that will discolor silver with contact: lemon, mustard, salt, mayonnaise, egg, and rubber. If you develop an unsightly stain try to remove it with silver polish and a cloth. If that fails, call us at 800-645-4193 or e-mail us.
